Disney-ABC Television makes streaming deals
Television streaming continues to be a high priority for companies with video-on-demand services as both Netflix and Amazon.com recently solidified their ability to stream ABC and Disney TV shows, according to a release.
For Netflix, which has fallen on tough times according to recent financial and stock reports, this meant extending their licensing deal with Disney-ABC Television. Under the terms, content will still be made available on the site 30 days after the last episode of each season airs. But the deal includes additional shows previously unavailable, including ABC Family’s Switched at Birth, prior episodes of Disney Channel’s Kick Buttowski, and all episodes of Alias.
Meanwhile, Amazon struck their own short-term deal for similar content, which would make prior seasons of Grey’s Anatomy, Lost, and other shows available for streaming for members of the Amazon Prime program.
